[00:14:13] – What has been your most memorable experience so far? I’ve been fortunate in a lot of ways to have good outcomes in what I do, and I give thanks for being to the great medical school of other ads and practices that have been educational. Continuing education has helped keep me a more compassionate doctor. I love to see the progress of a patient, and I love seeing the impact of it. I’m not afraid to reach out to my colleagues and ask them what the best option for a patient I may not be able to treat. As a physician, I have a greater sense of what is more acceptable and what is not compared to someone who doesn’t have a medical foundation. We all have to take that step to learn more, read more, and do more research. A lot of people don’t read as much as they should.
